Creative Force Behind "Jersey Shore" Brings Another Captivating Docu-Series to VH1

NEW YORK, NY - November 21, 2011 - VH1 is putting one of the most important human relationships under the microscope - the complex dynamics that develop between a mother and her young adult daughter. But these aren't your run-of-the-mill mini-van driving soccer moms. They're women who refuse to grow up and prefer to be their daughters' best friends. They love to party, play and, in their own ways, even parent a little. Can their relationships survive intact? Not really! Will their diverse backgrounds and parenting styles clash? Hell, yeah! It all goes down Sunday, January 1, 2012 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on VH1's "Mama Drama."

This 10 episode docu-series will uncover five sets of over-the-top, mothers and their adult daughters that leave you wondering, who is the "grown-up" and who is the child? They'll put their relationships on the line as they figure out if being BFFs really is the best for everyone or just a recipe for total disaster. Forced to live together, they will have no choice but to look in the mirror. Do they wish they had more traditional relationships? Or is this the only way to live? There will be no host to guide them, no therapist to heal them, just five sets of wildly different women trying to work out their issues under the same roof. Whether they're bonding, fighting or just partying, they're bound to learn something... whether they like it or not.

This docu-style social experiment will bring these women together with others like them for the first time, forcing them to take a look at their own lives. They represent the '15/50' mentality: they have the body of a grown woman but want to act as if they are fifteen. The trend is sweeping the nation, and is perfectly demonstrated on "Mama Drama." These moms are copying their daughters' fashion and night life decisions in order to hang onto their youth and crazy ways. The women will be shocked to see the trends they are setting and ultimately ask themselves: can they learn from their wild-child ways or will they always be the teen queens they once were? Will it make them want to change the way they treat each other and can they learn to be age-appropriate and start parenting instead of partying? Living under a microscope, will lead them to defend their choices or to apologize for them. The time for a change is now, but this show can only guarantee one result: non-stop, wall to wall, mama drama. "Mama Drama" premieres Sunday, January 1, 2012 at 9:00 PM ET/PT on VH1.

VH1's "Mama Drama" is executive produced by SallyAnn Salsano for 495 Productions. Executive producers for VH1 are Shelly Tatro, Brad Abramson and Jeff Olde. Sean Gottlieb serves as supervising producer.
